The launch of legalised igaming services in the Netherlands has been delayed due to a 'malfunction' with the country's new self-exclusion system.

On October 1st, online gambling was set to begin, with ten operators gaining licences which allowe them to begin operations. 

However, due to a "technical issue" with the Centraal Register Uitsluiting Kansspelen, regulator de Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) claimed online operators could not allow players to gamble.

“Due to a technical malfunction of Cruks, it is not possible for online providers, such as Holland Casino and Toto, to allow players on their websites,” it said.

“The cause of the malfunction has been identified. We are working hard to fix it.”
